take this to mean you want a time­piece that’s nei­ther run-ofthe-mill nor nov­elty. Nixon has plenty of op­tions, some sub­tly off-cen­tre with in­ter­est­ing num­ber­ing and place­ment – the full neon dig­i­tal ver­sions have a whiff of ar­rested development about them, so may be best avoided (nixon.com). Paul Smith has one with colour­ful num­bers (paul­smith.com), while in the lux­ury realm, I quite like the square Tag Heuer Monaco – quite aside from its Steve McQueen in Le Mans cool, at cer­tain hours it looks like it has an an­gry face (mr­porter. com). But if you re­ally want to mess with peo­ple’s heads, how about this 24-hour watch from Perth start-up Jacopo Dondi (pic­tured, $280, ja­copodondi. com)? Just don’t try to tell the time af­ter too many whiskies.
